  • Bears and Berries

    Effective:  July 19, 2021

      Park visitors are asked to be extra vigilant about bear safety while hiking, recreating and camping in bear country due to some berries ripening and a poor berry crop.  Avoid areas with berry bushes, strictly follow all preventative practices when in bear country. Bear Smart

      Remember, bears depend on the berry crop to gain enough weight to survive the winter; please respect their need to feed themselves and their young.  Should you come across any wildlife closures, please follow the directions; never cross into closed areas.
